American pair capture Under-18 singles titles

THE AMERICAN pair of Blaise Bicknell and Sasha Wood lived up to their respective billings as the top seeds, and favourites, as they captured the boys and girls Under-18 singles titles yesterday, as the ITF/COTECC Trinity Cup 2018 concluded at the National Racquet Centre, Tacarigua.

Both finals were all-American affairs, but the number one seeds had little to no trouble in earning straight-set wins.

Bicknell got past seventh seed Andre Mariados 6-4, 6-3 in the boys decider while Wood breezed past second seed Sofia Rojas 6-0, 6-1.
